Under the directorship of Christian Seely, this property has been a strong performer, especially in good vintages, like 2016. The 2016 sits in the glass with a dark hue. The nose displays black fruit and cassis. It is very concentrated on the palate, with solid viscosity and weight – almost like a crashing wave of dark fruit swirling around one’s mouth. There is a lot to unfurl here. The acidity keeps everything in balance and it finishes with a mouth-coating texture and notes of blackcurrant, mocha and coffee. Very good this year.
